We had both our ceremony and reception at the HOB NOLA this past March... and it was really better than we could have imagined!!! Kelly/Allie worked so hard to execute all of our visions & wishes, and everything went off without a hitch. We had our reception in the VooDoo garden, and despite it down-pouring an hour before the wedding, the courtyard looked beautiful, dry and they even added some decorations down the aisle to match our wedding theme. They also accommodated a band we brought down from home that played during the ceremony. Most importantly, our guests had a blast! They were able to enjoy a cocktail before/during the ceremony, and we had a second line up to the Parish Room. The reception was amazing. The lighting, music (hire the Dana Abbott Band!) , food, table decor, bar... everything looked so classy, and people were able to get seconds and thirds of the buffet which we got lots of compliments on! If you are considering the HOB for a non-traditional, FUN wedding... don't hesitate. It is worth every penny, and was certainly the best bargain when comparing venues in NOLA. THANK YOU!

My wife and I recently got married in New Orleans, a destination wedding for ourselves and all of our guests. The venue we chose was the House of Blues and we couldn’t be happier with our decision.
When we were first looking for venues in NOLA we wanted to go with some place in the French Quarter that was unique, fun, had a space large enough for up to 100 guests, had a great in-house chef (because we didn’t want to have to deal with an additional vendor), and was affordable. We ended up finding HOB on multiple wedding sites with great reviews.
We reached out to get some more information and spoke with Britt, the sales coordinator there. Britt was really helpful in answering our questions and quickly responding to emails. Britt was able to connect us with the right people to get things moving.
We ended up booking the Voodoo Garden for our ceremony and the Parish Room for our reception. From that point Jeanne took over helping us organize the initial plans of our event. Since we were doing everything from the other side of the country, we needed lots of assistance from HOB staff, and Jeanne was happy to take that role and made the process super smooth for us.
A few months before the wedding we made a trip out to New Orleans to meet with some of our vendors, and we also met with Allie the Sales Manager while we were there. Allie was incredibly accommodating for us, and we left that meeting feeling great about our upcoming nuptials!
We also started corresponding with Jen who was the Logistics Coordinator for our wedding.She went above-and-beyond for us, coordinating the event with us late one evening on a 2 hour phone call. She was even able to work with the chef there to make us a special beignet tower instead of a typical wedding cake.
Thank you HOB for a great wedding. Cant wait to see you the next time we're down in the Crescent City!

We had our ceremony and reception at the House of Blues and it was absolutely amazing! Kelly and Britt (along with the rest of the staff) were so easy to work with and accommodating. From the initial planning meeting to the day of our wedding, they made sure every detail was taken care of and we could not thank them enough for all that they did to make our day so special. We would highly likely recommend this venue to anyone looking to have a fun New Orleans wedding!!
HOB NOLA consistently remains a favorite of ours when performing in the Big Easy, and it's easy to see why! Talented staff, great menus, fun attitudes and memorable, historical spaces all work together to make your wedding the best!
